From The Bride…From the moment we got engaged, Jorge and I knew that we wanted to have our wedding in Brownsville, Texas because it felt like home to us. We also instantly knew that we wanted our wedding to be a celebration of not only our love for each other, but for the union of our two wonderful families , a HUGE party with our favorite people, and a classic affair with a touch of modern elements. For the décor, I had imagined an emerald and gold color scheme, lush green garland down long banquet tables, classic white florals, and hints of glitter and black and white stripes to add that modern touch.

Thanks to our wonderful vendors our wedding was all that we had imagined and more! Susana Rosser from All Party Rentals and Brenda Guerra from Special Flowers transformed our outdoor venue into something truly magical. Pichis Sound’s music had everyone on the dance floor the entire night, and it was an amazing party. Cynthia’s Cakes incorporated the elements of my décor into our cake, and designed a cake that was not only breathtaking but delicious. Nena Siller served our guests a delicious Three Musketeers Entrée that included Beef Tenderloin, Crab Stuffed Dover Sole Roll, and a Poblano Chicken Mignon. Anahi and Edgar Navarro captured special moments of our wedding so that we will have beautiful pictures to cherish forever. Jorge and I cannot thank these wonderful people enough for their commitment to making our day exceptionally special, and for all of their planning, attention to detail and their beautiful work.

We are so grateful to have been given a weekend full of memories that we will adore for many years to come, and for all the people from near and far that came to celebrate our love for each other! It was the most amazing love fest and party that we have ever been a part of, and despite the stresses of wedding planning we would do it over a million times if we could!

Geometric Themed Wedding full of DIY

For two architects tying the knot, this geometric themed wedding makes total sense. And it’s done in such a subtle way that allows the true beauty and simplicity to really shine through. From the DIY concrete candles to the plexiglass escort cards hand-made by the couple, this day is as personalized as they come. For even more, hop on over to the full gallery of images captured by Sunny 16 Photography.

From the Bride…We played around with so many different concepts. At first we wanted to do something revolving around location (I grew up in Texas, Brian in Singapore, and we met in Copenhagen – or Boston, depends on who’s telling the story!). So on the invitation, we drew a dymaxion map with our significant cities. Then we wanted to try something special for the wedding favors and our overly excited response was, ‘let’s make it out of concrete!’ Also, for some inexplicable reason hexgrids, polygons, random geometric shapes and san serif fonts kept finding their way into our planning. Somehow it always came back to nerdy architecture references (Surprise, we’re architects). It was inescapable. Even if we wanted another theme, there would be architectural references – so in the end, we went with the flow.

A huge part of the DIY came about because we’ve been playing with lasers for ages now (btw, mad props to Kristen @MakeATX). Although it made for an insane deadline, the wedding was a perfect excuse to do the things we’d never quite found the time for. We had an amazing time designing the candle holders and pouring multiple concrete material tests (which for some reason came out shinier in Copenhagen–we think it’s the hard water). The molds were lasercut out of thin sheets of plexi, hand folded, poured with a concrete mix and cured for a couple days- the entire family helped out. It was pretty funny seeing architects, computer programmers, and nasa scientists sitting around covered in concrete. We also made a bunch of other laser tests, these included the thick plexiglas escort cards, favor tags, table numbers and the fold up polygons scattered around the room. Really we just like playing with laser cutters.

Another source of inspiration was the location itself. The majority of guests had never been to Texas before and a large portion was coming from out of country. We wanted something unique to my hometown but also something that described the modern architecture that we were interested in. Barr Mansion, a literal barn with a modern glass façade, was a lovely blend of these inspirations. This juxtaposition gave us an opportunity to incorporate (without clashing with the modern elements) the more romantic pieces like gold picture frames, antique lawn furniture and the chandeliers hanging in the giant pecan tree.

From Posh Floral Designs… We absolutely love outdoor weddings, especially when they take place in a lush garden! Lauren and Brice exchanged vows in the expansive tulip garden at the Dallas Arboretum, and it was the perfect setting for this soft, colorful spring wedding.

Brice and Lauren chose to wait until the ceremony to see each other that day, and we were so excited about this! We love tradition, and welcomed the opportunity to capture the raw emotion as Brice beheld his beautiful bride for the first time. Lauren’s stunning lace dress paired with her classic up-do made for a breathtaking entrance! As they exchanged vows, the scent of the flowers and the chirping of birds filled the air.

The couple’s reception followed at Rosine Hall at the Arboretum. Classic, elegant and beautiful describes Lauren and Brice’s style, and the reception reflected this perfectly. It was incredibly romantic – full of beautiful candles, laughing, lots of dancing, delicious food – and simply overflowed with flowers.

One of my favorite moments of the night was just before the couple’s departure. While all the guests went outside to line up with sparklers for the newlyweds’ send off, Lauren and Brice shared one last dance, just the two of them, in the empty reception room. They laughed, kissed, and looked around, taking in the fantastic night. They were glowing and I felt honored to capture such an authentic and intimate moment.

Lauren and Brice’s wedding was nothing short of beautiful in every way possible. However, what truly made their night so wonderful were the amazing family, friends and vendors that came together to celebrate this sweet couple. We always love the opportunity to work with inspirational vendors, and we couldn’t believe the extraordinary talent that came out for this gorgeous spring wedding!
